Sick Plant Who knows? Mites/thrips
Hey guys any ideas what this is and how to fix? I suspect it's mites but leave it to the pros.
I mistakenly left some sawdust on them.....long story why and how so still thought it was tht
pictures aint great here mate, but judging by the effect the bugs are having on the leaves, it looks like spider mites.
Oh awsome mate I'll read up about them thanks heaps I'll keep uz up2 date
So I'm about 3 weeks into flower and am wonder what options I have I have seen kangan water 2.5 kills aphids just wondering if anyone knows if this would work for spider mites and not affect the taste of the buds
Iv still not had the pleasure of meeting any spider mites but iv seen some of the lads here using things called Hot Shots, I think it wipes out all pests. I dont know if you can buy it where you are or not but I think you can get it on ebay and amazon in the uk. Some of the other lads will can probably give you more info on it tho. Good luck man hope you get them sorted 🙂
Stootie has it right.
This is Zombie Nation’s remedy and while I’ve not needed to use it yet, everyone who has dais it was a good answer to the problem. If you’re in the US then they are available at any Lowes. If you’re outside the US they get expensive and you need to get them from eBay. Be sure to read the instructions carefully mate. These aren’t supposed to be in an area that humans are in for more than 4 hours per day. Never heard of anyone dying but that’s what the instructions say.
Other alternates would be predator mites or Dr Zymes.
What would be the options if you wanted to stay organic with no pesticides?
Not saying I wouldn't go straight in for the kill but is there alternative ways?
Looks alot like thrip damage to me. The silvery white spots etc. Are you seeing any webbing? That's a clear indicator of spider mites. Also, spider mites will have 2 dots on their backside.
I am a big fan of oils for killing off pest. Tea tree, eucalyptus, peppermint etc. Even Neem oil even though that one is disputed sometimes. Just don't spray anything during flower.
During flower for mites, get you some predator mites! Hypoaspis Miles, Lady bug larvae, green lacewing larvae will all demolish them.
Also, you can use good Ole mechanical means to knock them down and just vacuum them off or even spray them off the water.
Once you have an issue, there really isn't one answer. You need to do a rotation of things to knock them down and keep them down.
Hope this helps!
Thanks guys for all your help I've so far tried the 2.5 water. I'm in nz so can't get most of tht stuff without a very long shipping time wait. So been trying to see what's here need oil is popular bud I don't want my buds affected
